IBTUR 88 Ultra Marathon – November 30, 2013



Calling all Ultra runners to experience this once in a lifetime event because of the aesthetic, pure challenge, and its noble component. This event aims to give back to the less fortunate children and students of La Union, because some portion of the proceeds of this event will help the set-up a library to serve the three (300) indigent students of Brgy. Baraoas. These children lived 20Kilometers away from the City proper, their geographical location deprive them of so many things including the access to better or functional library.

IBTUR 88 conceptualized to help these children. With the help of the would-be-sponsors and contributor most importantly the Ultra runners or the main participants of this event, these children will have a better chance of gaining a quality education and better life that they truly deserved. So come and run in IBTUR 88, prove your ‘un-breakability’, experience another level of running, see the wonders of nature at its best, most of all, “stride” for the sake of these children.

    • Hi Countyboy! Its randy or irunner here, i will give a stunning trophy and expensive trophy and i can’t give out medal to everyone. Only the top 10 finishers for each category or age category will receive a medal. The best that i am about to give aside for the trophy is the Finisher Ring, but the runner must pay an additional P500 for the silver medal. Thank you :-)

    • Hi Zaldo, the shirts designs are now posted @ irunner fanpage. all the rest of the runner receivables are still ongoing or under refinement, thank you :-)

  1. The trophy is currently undergoing refinement, i am doing my very best to give you the most aesthetically outstanding trophy that will represent your great accomplishment. I hope to out the design before the month of July ends. Its the first time for iRunner to give out a trophy, and i want to be the best, kaya lang talagang napakamahal po ng presyo ng trophy :-)

  2. dapat me group discount ulit para marami sumali… at higpit naman po sa mga ruta, o tignang mabuti ang mga tumatakbo kung naka ikot ba sila sa tamang ruta.. para iwas sa hindi inaasahang dayaan… salamat and God Bless…

    • Hi Jed! thanks for the suggestion. I will be very strict now in the guarding of the route to prevent such thing to happen. As for the group discount, i apologize but i simply cannot give it in this event because 88Kilometer entails so much logistical expenses, plus the price of the Trophy is very costly, its 3 to 4 times the value of the medal. For better organization and management of the event we will only accept 100 participants on a first come first serve basis.

  3. mga katakbuhan for more information about ibtur 88 pls check out the irunner fanpage: https://www.facebook.com/irunnerscommunity?fref=ts

    hi recklessrunner! wala po tayong cut-off this year, we might have a cut-off in the succeeding version of ibtur but for this year maiden version eh wala po muna kase kapaan muna ito.
    for the terrain, it is pure pavement mula kapatagan hanggang kabundukan. Then from the starting line you will run a long 40kilometer flat route, then after, prepare for non-stop uphills and down-hills, the highest peak is about 2100 feet above sea level higher than what we gave you at LUUM2. Then the 10K before you reach the town of San gabriel, its all pure down-hill, then the last 10K from San Gabriel to San Juan is flat (ku ikaika route), pero yung last 700 meters papunta sa finish line ay buhangin po o tabing dagat. yan po kase ang tinatawag nating ‘dramatic ending’ ng event, you guys will run beside the beach in the last 700 meters stretch with the sunset on your left side this is also the opportunity for the runner to glance the beauty of San Juan Surfing site beach at sun down.

  4. hi taktalaok! aasahan kita sa La Union for the IBTUR 88 on November 30, 2013, thank you for your support to irunners God bless you always :-)

    1. Pre-race briefing and disposal of race packets will be held at3:00 PM, November 29, 2013 at Final Option Resort San Juan, La Union.
    2. The registration fee of 2,500.00 Php includes, race bib, pre-race meal, two event shirt, TROPHY, and a lei. And for OFFICIAL FINISHERS who are willing to shell out an additional P500, they can have their IBTUR Finisher ring.
    3. Reflective vests, flashlights/headlamps must be worn at the appropriate times and a fully-charged and loaded cellphone must be brought by the runners at all times.
    4. Race bibs MUST be worn in FRONT at all times. Any other way bib is worn (or absence of such) will merit an outright 1-hour time penalty that will be added to the time of the runner.
    5. All participants are encouraged to use recyclable water and food containers and to dispose of all wastes properly. Any report of improper disposal will merit an outright 1-hour time penalty that will be added to the time of the runner.
    6. Pacers are allowed.
    7. All support vehicles must be properly marked with runner’s name. This must be visible from the driver’s side and back. Support vehicles not bearing the same will not be allowed to act as a support vehicle. We encourage that the support vehicles must be 4X4 because of the difficulty of the uphill terrain.
    8. All participants and support crews are encouraged to conduct themselves in a civilized manner. Avoid playing loud music or making noise.
    9. There will be NO CURFEW.
    10. Runners are strongly encouraged to stay on the left side of the road (facing traffic) at all appropriate times.
    11. All support vehicles must follow existing traffic rules in each locality and must be parked properly when aiding a participant, with blinkers and headlights on.
    12. Participants are allowed to leave the course for any reason, provided the support crew will note the exact location with a marker (to include race number and name) visible to other participants and race officials. Participant must resume the race from the said marked point.
    13. In support of the environment, first, no plastic cups to be distributed in the aid stations or there will be no water cups available but water container only where the runners can refill, second, bicycles or motorbikes are encouraged for use as support vehicles. Because of the narrow road that leads to the mountainous part of the route, motorbikes or ‘not-so-wide’ vehicles is the best option for a support vehicle.
    14. All runners are to attend to their personal necessities in the most decent way. In the absence of houses or public restrooms, everyone is encouraged to do their thing with the general public as their main consideration.
    15. It is the responsibility of the runners to know the race route. Time lost will not be deducted from racing time. Every single inch of the route must be covered on foot. In the occurrence of a runner taking a wrong direction, he/she may take a ride back to the exact spot where he/she missed the correct turn and continue running.

    16. There will be aid stations along the route (where water, medics, food is available). In flat or plains there will be one aid station for every 5Kilometers, and in mountainous areas there will be one for every 3Kilometers. Despite, runners are allowed to buy food/drinks at any point of the course.
    17. All runners must contact the Race Director should they decide to declare themselves DNF. They must include distance covered and time of withdrawal. This is to properly account for participants still in the contention.
    18. Protest/s must be made within one hour of the event’s conclusion and must be accompanied by a sworn statement together with documentary evidence (video or picture). Absence of one requirement will make protest void.
    19. While every reasonable precaution will be undertaken by the organizers to ensure the participants’ safety, it is understood that the participants are fully aware of the risks involved, run at their own risk and the organizers and/or sponsors shall not be responsible for any injury, liability or death arising from training or occurring during participation in the race.
    20. Participants are responsible for their support crew and vehicle.
    21. A participant must retire from the race if required to do so by any member of the medical staff.
    22. Once registration is accepted, there will be no entry fee refund for participants who, for whatever reason, do not eventually take part in the race. Likewise, there will be no entry fee refund if the event is cancelled or postponed on account of force majeure or for other causes beyond the control of the race organizers.
    23. The organizers reserve the right to use any photographs, motion pictures, recordings or any other media recordings for any legitimate purpose including commercial advertising without giving monetary consideration to the participant.
    24. The Race Director may, at any time, modify race rules and guidelines before, during or after the event, and the official race route for the benefit of the participants.

  6. mj, mam actually you don’t really need a support group dito sa IBTUR especially if its hard for you to get one, kase like what ive posted we will be setting up aid station per every 5Kilometer in plains and every 3K in the mountains. These aid stations will help you and aide you in what ever you need like water, medicine, massage etc. All the runners must bring are the following: headlamp, water container and a pair of shoes. Thank you and hope to see you again here in La Union :-)

    • Hello Irunner. isasama na po ba yung bus transpo sa BDO depo? less 25% na po ba? magkanu sana me break down.. para bayad na lang agad sa BDO tnx po

  13. Countryboy and to all: kung magshuttle po tayo at kung early bird registrant po tayo ay bale P2875 po ang babayaran lahat. Heto po ang Account name and number ng iRunners: Bank: BDO
    Account Name: iRunners Productions, Account Numbers: 004430229387, salamat, agyaman ak apo!

    • hello Irunners. sa route po ng IBTUR anu recomend nyo po trail shoes or pang road lang? kaya na po ba pang road shoes? Kabundukan meaning me trail po ba ito?

      • Sir Countryboy, road shoes can do the job. may part na may kunting soil but that is less than a kilometer. 95% ng kalsada ay simple pavement or cemented kahit na sa kabundukan :)

      • Hi RTS,

        Hindi porke madaming tinatanong ay di na makaintindi. Gusto lang ni Countryboy na malinawan at malaman ang tamang gear. Kung elite ka, wag mo namang maliitin ang mga baguhan. Imbes na sagutin ng maayos ang tanong, eh iba pa sinasabi mo sa Ilocano na hindi naman naintindihan ng lahat. Malay mo, yong tanong ni Countryboy ay tanong din ng iba na naghihintay lang din ng kasagutan.

        Hindi kaya ikaw ang nang-aasar?

  14. Friends, fellow runners and ultra runners, the (facebook) registration for IBTUR 88 has started since yesterday. As of the moment (August 6) the remaining slot for grab is 95.

    • im interested to join
      but a little bit confused
      your statement/comment above is not consistent with your
      post in iRunner fb
      please shed light on this matter
      tnx in advance

      • dyun, ganito yan. Mula September 20 to October 14, 2013 ang registration fee ng ibtur ay P2000 nalang dahil gusto natin na makumpleto na ang slots and also this is due to the help of Sir Pat Maranan of Caliraya Runners who helped us find a cheaper but high quality trophies. Now, beyond the said date above kung sakaling may avail slot pa, the registration will go back to the original fee this move is to sway the runners to register early para maayos na ang lahat including the bibs, shirts etc.
        I hope malinaw na po ang lahat, salamat po :)
